Gordy's to open 13th grocery store

The company runs twelve other Gordy’s grocery stores, and six gas stations.  Gordy's says it employs more than 1,300 people throughout west central Wisconsin.

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Gordy's County Market says it will start running the Osseo Hometown Market at the end of next month.

The company made the announcement on Friday afternoon. It declined to disclose the purchase price for the store on 10th Street in Osseo. Gordy's plans to retain all of the 25 current employees and adding a few positions.

Gordy's says it bought the store from Scott and Terri Swett, whose family opened Osseo Super Valu in 1966. The couple acquired the store in 1998, and changed the name to Osseo Hometown Market in 2010 because Affiliated Foods Midwest became the distributor.
